Great start smartphone

Summary: I loved this phone. Owned it for nearly two years. I bought it as a college student because I wanted a smart-ish phone, but didn't have the money to shell out for a flagship. It turned out to be an excellent phone.
Excerpt: Fist 3 months with it were ok, but every second after was dreadful. Internet experience is bad, camera is awful. The UI is old, slow, just awful and there no way to get an update OTA other than using a CustomRom. The screen is to small to type and see what you are writing at the same time.
Pros: Cheap, Good low-end phone
Cons: Very outdated even for a low-end phone today
Excerpt: I got it in 2012 and used in until 2013 and it was my first smartphone I ever owned and I learned a lot of things about android from it! It used to be a very nice phone back in the day, but now it's just nothing more than a device you can use to browse Facebook or watch videos.
Pros: It can survive a large drop, Small size, Has basic things a smartphone must have
Cons: Extremely Slow CPU, Extremely low RAM, Extremely Slow GPU, Small screen, Low Pixel Density, Not much games can run on it, Bad battery (Can last max 1 day), Bad camera, Android 2.3.7, Low build quality, Slow UI, Bad WIFI signal, It's very thick
Although it is cheap, it is still better than a BlackBerry

Excerpt: If you want a phone, for temporary use, than this is the phone for you as it does every basic thing. You can download games and social networking apps on the play store, this is not recommended as this phone does not perform well when overloaded with apps.
Pros: Cheap, but still better than a BlackBerry!
Cons: The fact that it is cheap makes you jealous of more expensive android phone users

Summary: If anyone is interested let me know I have the box and all the parts. It works perfectly, no scuffs or cracks. My mom took care of it more than me! (kidding). Gets the job done, does not drop calls, connects to wifi and gets 3G.
Summary: I purchased this phone for while I was in Australia 2013. It was unlocked as described by seller. I was able to use a prepaid sim card (Amasym - Australia), then I also used a prepaid card from T Mobile while in Hawaii going to and coming back from Australia.
Summary: This phone automatically gets disconnected from the network. The basic purpose of a mobile phone is being connected. This phone does not serve that purpose. You think you are connected and people can call you anytime if there is a need.
